Roads Into Kendrick KENDRICK GAZETTE Subscription Price $1.50 In Advance VOLUME 32 KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER ». 1922 NUMBER 36 Road Building Experience 'Oregon has expended over $50,000, 000 in the past five years in building first units of one of the finest high way systems in the United States. It has profited by the experience of many other states from the stand point of laying pavement that re quires a minimum of maintenance •cost. It has been able to profit by the experience of other states which have laid many hundreds of miles of rigid base pavement having no shock ab sorbing qualities and the surface of which has not been protected by a •coating of sojne shock absorbing substance. The burden of maintaining perma nent highways is emphasized by the proposal of the Highway Commission of California to raise an additional -$65,000,000 for "maintenance" of the roads throughout the state. California was a pioneer in road building and constructed hundreds of miles of concrete highways which in the experimental days of road building seemed indestructible. The incessant jar of modern traffic, however, on the unyielding concrete road surface can eventually have but one result, namely, crystallization of the concrete with its subsequent dis integration. ------- Concrete is like cast iron. It will I stand for an indefinite period when it « not subjected to the shock ot i repeated impact. To save its concrete | base road. California is finding it nec- | essary to surface it with a top dress- I ihg of bituminous character and thus 1 relieve the concrete base from the di- : rect blows of traffic impact. With this experience to go by. Ore- ' gon has confined its road construe tion almost entirely to pavements of asphaltic concrete character with a result that it seems to have minim ized its maintenance cost. The taxpayers are deeply interested in this question for in the long run they must foot the bill which a per manent highway system involves. I Recital Greatly Enjoyed _ I The annual joint recital of the I • Qnn ötnHßn . onH Mrc w I piano students of Prof, and Mrs. . V . W. Gatenby was held in the Method ist church at Kendrick Thursday evening, August 31. There was a large and appreciative audieneel to greet them. The unique feature of the program was the beautiful ensemble work of the pupils. The solos were mostly classical or semi-classical na ture, and much praise was accorded them. Those representing Kendrick and Juliaetta were: Hester Knepper, Jane 'McConnell, Maud Compton, Wilson Rogers, Alvira Attchison, Alberta Walker, Gertrude Taylor. Anna Hoo bler and Mrs. Leo Raaberg. Those from Clarkston were: Eve lyn Peterson, Grace Manley, Bertha Perkins, Anna Caraway, Rebecca i I specialty—Vivian Reed, ) Poole, Susilee Perkins. These last named four young ladies gave a pro- j gram Grace Nixon, Ida Taylor, Wanda Standley, Josephine Gordon, Hazel ! Florance and Hazel Sell. j The Kendrick girls entertained the visit*ng pupils in fine style. On Fri day a picnic dinner was much en- | joyed in the Kendrick park. Fairview Items ' J. M.

Busier than any winter for several years. The improved lumber market is calling for increased production. The lumber companies must cut more trees and make more lumber. This calls for increased activity and the maximum of production in the for ests. To meet the demand and keep the big mill humming the Potlatch Lum ber Company is establishing new camps and augmenting its forces in the old ones. Within a month there should be an army of men—500 or more—working in the adjacent for ests. Camp 3 has wound up its work near Deary and is about to be moved to Vassar meadows, directly across the mountain from Deary. This camp will log the timber from the north , slope of Potato Hill. A spur reaches ! into that section from Helmer and additional track is being laid with I the steel that is being taken from the old camp. Camp 6, at Helmer, and Camps 10 and 11, further up the meadow, are busier than ever and Camp 14, near Avon, will be speeded up as soon as logging horses can be purchased. Old Camp 2 at Bovill is working ex . . . ■*,. . T»«. , » , « chisively on white pine. Most of the logging at Princeton is being done by contract Dozens of our young men are now working in the camps. In passing we might state that the camps are kept, clean and sanitary, have comfortable beds and an abundance of wholesome: well cooked food. The boys say living at the camps is like boarding at the best hotels.-Deary Press. --——— 'v/ Leland Items y The showery weather is hindering ttie bean threshing.

No Labor Shortage Star-Mirror: With the release ot the hatvest hands from the thresh . ing crews over the country the lab or shortage that has for a time re stricted operation in other fields of endeavor locally has been consider ably eased up, say men in a position to know the situation. A few weeks ago it was next to imposisble to get men for any work other than that of harvesting and they were not readily available in that field. As a result the city con struction on streets and sidewalks and other works were halted tem porarily. However, since the fall wheat of the outlying districts is virtually all in the stack a steady stream ot laborers has been pouring into the city until now the supply of work ers is adequate to care for the needs. Another condition that made the labor needed hard to get was occa sioned in connection with the oper ation of railroads with non-union help. The railroads offered workers i attractive opportunities with hous . ing accommodations. This removed from the district considerable num bers ot men who would otherwise have been available tor domestic labor. However, only during the harvest season did this situation especially affect liie local industries when there was a large demand tor labor ers on the farm as we 1 1 as in other industries. With the letup in the harvest fields the shortage lias vir tually disappeared. M. E. Church Notes re Next Sunday begins a new year in our church, and we hope to see all the services well attended. Let every teacher make a special effort to rally the classes tor a full attend ance for Sunday school. Rally Day will soon be here, and we must plan for it. The Kpworth League is planning an unusual meeting at an unusual hour, 7 o'clock. A special feature will be the dramatization of "Thanksgiving Ann", with the fol lowing characters: Thanksgiving Ann - Elsie Bird Silas - - Wilson Rogers Mr.Allyn - Arthur Pickering Mrs. Allyn - Hazel Stanton The children Edna and Juanita Stanton. there will be no preaching ser vice in the morning in Kendrick, as services will be held on American ridge. Prayer service Thursday evening at 7:3U o'clock. Couldn't Collect Insurance . j j But a small per cent of those who had crops damaged last week by the hail, will collect hail insurance. A clause in hail insurance policies states that the policy is in force only so long as the crop is standing. As soon as it has been cut insurance ceases to be in force. Nearly all of the growers on Potlatch ridge had cut their grain and heans and so could not collect insurance Dave Schoeffler near Cameron perhaps came out as well as most as his beans were standing in the field and he collected insurance on a basis ot 85 per cent damage, or $25.5U per acre. Hail Played Havoc It is reported that a child of Ted Roberts on the lower point of Pot latch ridge almost lost his life in the hail storm last week. He was caught out in the storm and before he could reach shelter he was badly bruised by the hail stones. A horse belonging to Melvin Miller became crazed with I b > »*"« ** «* plunged into a fence. A stake pen his! Crated his heart and killed him m ' stantly. Raleigh Albright had to get 1 new roofing for his buildings. He j <n ] SO ] ost 12 acres of melons. The prune crop in the hail area was prac tically a total loss. Potlatch ridge a,,d Pot,atch cau > on wfre hit hurdest and suffered most damage. K. Eichner-Simpson Miss Lulu Eichner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Claus Eichner of American ridge, was married last Saturday to Mr. Gerald E. Simpson. The wedding, which took place in Moscow, was a complete surprise to the many friends of the happy couple. Miss Eichner's girlhood was spent on the farm on American ridge, where her parents have lived since early pioneer days. She has tor several years been employed as book-keeper at the J. Alexander store at Lewiston. Gerald Simpson is a native son of Idaho, having spent the greater portion of his life in Lewiston, where he graduated from high school three years ago. He is now employed by the Mason-Ehrman company as traveling salesman. Mr. and Mrs. Simpson will make their home at 814 Eighth street. Presbyterian Church Notes The Presbyterian church has ex perienced a very profitable sum mer's work under the leadership of Rev. G. A. Morton, in spite ot the unusually hot summer. The D. V. B. S. held jointly with tne Methodist church as a commun ity school was very successful and profitable to the community. The Sunday school has discovered several excellent leaders and the membership has grown materially during the summer. Much enthus îasm is shonwn and we are in hope ot doing good things for Kendrick since ttie cooler weather is here. Preacning service arrangements are not completed but plans are on the way to provide services at least every two weeks this tall and win ter. The work of the Sunday school and junior Endeavor will continue every Sunday at the usual hour of 10:00 and 3:00 respectively. round tr 'P Lewiston-Clarkston Fair The settings for the Lewiston Clarkston Tri-State Fair and Round up, which opens next Tuesday, are complete according to nports from the Lewiston office.

American Legion Notes of the NEW ORLEANS—New Orleans is preparing an effective answer to the well known Army question. "When do we eat?" The reply will be ready for thousands of members of the American Legion, who come to the Crescent City for that organization's annual national convention. October, 16-20. Delectable old-time Spanish and French creole dishes, instead of the ordinary victuals on the menu will appease the appetites the restaurant men say. Descendants of creole cooks and those whom they taught the myster ies of preparing famous dishes will concoct the "gumbo filet", jambalays" "courtboullion", "entrements" and "creole desserts" especially for veter ans at the convention. French drip coffee, aptly termed "morning joy", will be served, it is rumored, early in the morning at the visitor's bedside. BOISE—Last winter the American Legion of Idaho found jobs for more than a thousand unemployed ex soldiers. It is believed that conditions for the coming winter will neccessi tate a continuation of this work on the part of the Legion, and each post is being urged to make preparations to see that every veteran has a job.

To day you hnd modern improvements, tine modern stores, churches, schools, prosperous well-dressed people. What made the change? It was the dairy cow, savs an ex change. A recent annual report of the Bertha Creamery gavp the names ot 104 patruns to whom the creamery paid during one year more than $1000 each for their butterfat. Again: the average payments to each of these 104 patrons that year was more than $1500—$13,000 of new money rolling intp that little community every month— $156,000 every year. Think ot that, you bankers, farmers and merchants, in communities where "times are hard", "money is tight", "collec tions slow." \Mrs. Edgar Long left Wednesday afternoon, for Spokane to visit triends. A negro mammy had a family of well-behaved boys, and one day her mistress asked, "Sally, how did you raise your boys so well?" "Ah'll tell you, missus," answered Sally. "Ah raise deni boys with a barrel stave, an' Ah raise 'em frequent."
